Vicar of Baghdad: Four Iraqi Christian Kids Beheaded After Refusing to Convert to Islam, Telling ISIS Militants ‘No, We Love Jesus’ #ISIS

The “religion” of peace strikes again.  Once Iran takes over Iraq will things get any better?  I think not. Other than preventing genocide, how will our intervention be in the US interest?  Hard to say.

#ISIS Opens Its Next Front in Sinai and Gulf of Aqaba

Now it is time for Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt to get into the mix.  This place is so isolated that carpet bombing and MOABs would be a good choice.  Let their ground troops do the mop up.

ISIS U-Turns West to Lebanon as Next Target #ISIS #Israel #Lebanon

This can’t be good for peace in the Middle East.  I was somewhat OK as long as the jihadists and other muslims were fighting themselves.  But if Israel gets mixed up in this it may unify the muslim world to engage in a crusade against the Jewish state.  We must get the ISIS leadership before …

America’s Way Ahead in Syria #ISIS from Institute for Study of War

This solution smacks a bit of nation building, but it may be the only way out of this quagmire.  I still contend that Syria is not a real country.  Rather it is a bunch of tribal fiefdoms that was once held together by a strong man.  It needs to revert to a tribal state but …

MEMRI: ‘The Emperor Has No Clothes’ #Iran #Obama

This is written by the founder of MEMRI and should bear VERY serious consideration. It concerns the Iran Nuclear “Agreement”.  The Emperor to whom he is referring is Obama. This guy knows what he is talking about and it is not good.

#ISIS targets #Egypt ian Antiquities, including Pyramids and Sphynx

This long article highlights the difficulties Egypt has in defending Sinai.  However, more sinister is their ability to protect such international treasures as the Cairo Museum, the Pyramids, The Sphinx, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, and Abu Simbel.  I am glad to have visited all except Abu Simbel.  It was dangerous enough then …
